    The stunning difference between Trump's reaction to the Las Vegas shooting and the NY

    Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large
    Updated 5:27 PM ET, Wed November 1, 2017

    (CNN)On October 1, a man shot and killed 58 people at an outdoor concert in Las Vegas -- the largest mass murder in modern American history.

    On October 3, President Donald Trump was asked about the impact of the shooting on current gun laws -- and possible future gun control measures. He said that his administration and Congress would "be talking about gun laws as time goes by." Trump was also asked whether the shooting was an act of domestic terrorism. He declined to answer.

    On October 4, in Las Vegas, Trump was again asked about possible legislative action on guns. "We're not going to talk about that today," he responded. "We won't talk about that."

    Fast forward 30 days.
    On October 31, an Uzbek man drives a rental truck in a bike lane in New York City. He kills eight people and injures a dozen more.

    Within hours, Trump tweeted this: "In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!" He followed up with a second tweet last night: "We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!" And a third: "I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!"

    Ms. Labrea,

    That liberals will whine about anything? You are correct, my good lady.

    Great thread. Listening to Trump speak this morning was like pulling teeth. He used intelligent phrases like "not good" and "not nice."

    A guy kills 58 people and nothing happens. A guy kills 8 people and we have to change laws right away.

    Every single freak'n day it's something. I just try to remember that there is a Moron in the White House through no fault of my own.

    Another thing. How do you step up Extreme Vetting? It's already to the extreme. God Trump is a Moron.

    How can we punish terrorists even more? The death penalty isn't enough? God this President is a Moron.

    Just gotta keep remembering the silver-lining:

    Since he's not disciplined enough to be quiet about his intent to commit illegal discrimination, the courts can continue to use his words against him when blocking his orders.
